About the IS-3 Pike - Russian Heavy Tank:
There are two tanks known as Object 244 and Object 703, that are known as IS-3. Object 244 was an IS-2 rearmed with the long-barreled 85mm cannon and developed by LKZ, which was never series-produced for service use. Object 703 was developed in late 1944 by ChTZ and left the factory shop in May 1945. This tank had an improved armor layout and a semi-hemispherical cast turret, which became the hallmark of post-war Soviet tanks. The IS-3’s pointed prow earned it the nickname “Pike” by its crews. It weighed slightly less and stood 30 cm lower than previous versions. Wartime production resulted in many mechanical problems and a hull weldline that had a tendency to crack open.
The IS-3 came too late to see action in WWII. The first public demonstration of the IS-3 came on September 7, 1945 during the Allied victory parade on Charlottenburger Straße in Berlin, with heavily reinforced 71st Guards Heavy Tank Regiment of the 2nd Guards Tank Army. Starting in 1960, the IS-3 was slightly modernized as the IS-3M, in a manner similar to the IS-2M.
